Northern Arizona University’s School of Music will host free concerts throughout the summer featuring performances by participants and instructors from the Curry Summer Music Camp, which celebrates its 65th anniversary this year.

The summer concert series kicks off with a special performance by the Marine Corps Band New Orleans on Tuesday, June 24 in Ardrey Memorial Auditorium. All concerts are free and open to the public.

The Curry Summer Music Camp invites aspiring young musicians to the Flagstaff campus each year to study under NAU School of Music faculty and world-renowned musicians from across the country and to meet and form lifelong friendships with fellow campers of diverse backgrounds and musical abilities. An estimated 23,000 – 25,000 musicians have attended the camp since its inception in 1950.

A full schedule of performances can be found here.
